The palace-city of Eidolon floats in the sky above the northern coast of the great continent of Emer, hovering arrogantly over the sprawling canal-city of Sel-kai below. Eidolon is a place of magic and wealth: a beautiful marble, crystal and glass metropolis which is the capital of the powerful economic city-state. It is also the haven and hub to legendary skyships: vessels which sail the winds.

Meanwhile, earthbound below, Sel-kai residents toil along the stinking canals, doing much of the work to support the elite residents of the sky-city.

But there are new dangers to Eidolon and her sister city of Sel-kai: nearby nations threaten war, and mysterious powers have arisen, coveting the wealth and power of Eidolon.

Eidolon Contains:

  • Detailed color city maps of Eidolon and Sel-kai.
  • Descriptions of more than 250 individual businesses in Sel-kai and Eidolon, many with layouts.
  • Price lists for items, services, lodging, and transport.

Second Edition Adds:

  • A complete layout revision with new material added throughout the book. 100 more pages in all!
  • A timeline advanced several years, including crucial new events.
  • Many new Adventures, set in Sel-kai & Eidolon.
  • New skyship and watercraft info, including ship plans.
  • New details about the inner workings of Eidolon and Sel-kai: society, celebrities, and scandals!
  • NPC stats for RM2/Classic and RMSS/RMFRP.

I would presume that most people are familiar with the first edition. In case you are not: When Eidolon first appeared back in the day, it set a new standard for roleplaying supplements. To me, it is a classic – among the best products ever published [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
